Quiet & Home Like- feels like the country
This place is very nice. Very well kept and quiet the getaway. The lake is peaceful and very private. Thank you
We loved it
The cottage had everything we needed and was located in a great location near shopping, major roads, and restaurants. Carmen and Dave were excellent hosts who went above and beyond to make our stay enjoyable and make us feel welcome.
Just What We Wanted
The cabin was just what we wanted for our stay...comfortable, clean and in a very nice location. We very much enjoyed the lake and all the scenery...and Dave and Carmen were wonderful hosts. We would happily stay here again!!
Great, relaxing place
Very nice place and very comfy. Relaxing lake view with wildlife.
Thank you Eric. We enjoyed having you as a guest.
Meticulously Clean, Generous Host, and Best View Ever!
We stayed here while visiting family in Brandon and Tampa. It was easy to hop on I-75 and I -4 to visit them. This little peaceful place has an incredible view of the lake loaded with wild life. I think we counted over 15 kinds in one day. White pelicans, sandhill cranes, cardinals, storks, ospreys to name a few. The host is very accommodating and she had coffee, cream and waters waiting for us. Their is a full washer and dryer too. She told us about a free gym for senior citizens in the area so we took advantage of that. The bed was comfy and she had several comforters to choose from. The kitchen was loaded making it easy for us to cook a couple of nights. Thank you Carmen and Dave we really appreciated your help with your directions. Hope to see you again.
We are happy to help anytime. Glad you enjoyed our place. Hope to see you soon.
This was really a great place to stay. There was plenty of yard space to sit out and enjoy the Florida weather and watch the birds. And there was a nice pool even though we didn't use it. The house had everything we needed and was actually pretty spacious as instead of a studio it had a seperate bedroom. Really nice when my husband stays up to watch TV and I want to go to bed. And Carmen and Dave are really delightful people. Could not have been better.
